IRB Submissions & Post-Approval Actions


NOTE: The IRB will be closed for spring break (from 3 p.m. March 19 to 9 a.m. March 29) All business will be handled according to priority when the office reopens, but due to understaffing, you may experience significant delays in response/processing. Thank you for your patience.


Submission Process & Post-Approval Actions

As you develop your project, a consultation with the IRB may be helpful. A simple discussion may lead you to revise your project design for a variety of reasons, such as unanticipated identifiers, unnecessary risks to human subjects, or a resulting change in the IRB review level. If you have questions at any stage in the process, please contact the IRB at or 206-296-2585.

*Note:  If you are a part-time SU employee during the academic year, consult with the Provost’s Office regarding eligibility for IRB review of your research protocol.
